Could Kylian Mbappe Be the Winner of the 2023 Ballon d’Or?

Kylian Mbappe has made history by becoming the best French scorer in a season, surpassing Just Fontaine’s record from 1957-58. Now, he has set his sights on a greater prize: the 2023 Ballon d’Or award.

Mbappe has set an outstanding example of excellence in football at only 25-years-old. In 2023 he helped Paris Saint-Germain to retain the Ligue 1 title and also shone during the World Cup, winning the Golden Boot as well as scoring a hat trick in the final against eventual winners Argentina. These achievements are remarkable and certainly solidify Mbappe’s claim that he deserves to be one of the finalists for the 2023 Ballon d’Or award.

Despite his young age, Mbappe already boasts an impressive club career having spent time playing for AS Monaco and Paris Saint-Germain since 2016. During these five years, he has scored over 200 goals in all competitions combined with assists accounting for another 100 goals. This impressive tally makes him one of the most prolific strikers in Europe and gives him a good chance to be among the Ballon d’or candidates come 2023.

Mbappe’s excellent form this season is also sure to make him a strong contender for next year’s individual honours; such as Player of the Year or Team of The Year awards. It is then no wonder why people are already starting to think that Mbappe is one of the frontrunners for winning next year’s Ballon D’Or award; it wouldn’t be surprising if he were able to end up wearing a new PSG jersey as part of his celebration!

It will still take some time before we know who will be crowned with next year’s prestigious award but it can be said with reasonable certainty that Kylian Mbappé should certainly be counted among the contenders come 2023. With so much talent and success already achieved at such a young age, it looks like there will likely be more records broken by this incredible footballer over the coming years…and hopefully some more PSG jersey 2023 worn too!
